Online Bingo free of charge? It's possible at GameTwist!
If you have enough Twists (our virtual game currency) in your gaming account, you can enjoy the globally popular lottery game free of charge! But before you get started, why not find out some interesting facts about Bingo here.
Bingo has many faces - from Beano to Tombola
The game with the magic winning word “BINGO!” originated in the USA. It’s popularity soared in 1929 when astute game developer and businessman Edwin Lowe brought it to the market in New York. Lowe had discovered the game at a fun fair in Georgia where it was being played by Spanish players who called it “Beano”. The name was changed by chance when a winner shouted out “Bingo!” in the heat of the moment during a game organised by Lowe.
Long before Bingo was played online the game was known by many people from TV shows. In some countries a Bingo session is even a family event on certain occasions. In Turkey, for example, it is traditionally played on New Year's Eve; however, the game is called “Tombola” there. In Nordrhein-Westfalen, especially in the region Bergisches Land, free Bingo is a popular pastime. During the green cabbage season sausages are raffled off and eggs are given away at Easter.
Bingo draws: the rules are simple!
No matter whether you play Bingo as a real-time version, online on your computer or on your smartphone, the legendary lottery game is easy to play! Here are the most important steps so you can shine at Online Bingo:
- The game is normally played with 75 balls. The draws are performed by a game master or at random online.
- The players receive one or more Bingo cards free or for a stake prior to the game starting. Gamers can bet Twists in the online variant at GameTwist and view their selected cards on the screen.
- A Bingo card usually has a 5 x 5 grid that forms 25 fields (although this can vary depending on the game), and a letter normally covers a certain range of numbers. Examples: B = 1-15, I = 16-30, etc.
Please note: The numbers vary from Bingo card to Bingo card, but prior to the game starting each card basically has the same chance of winning. How do you improve your chances? By getting several Bingo cards!
- After a number has been drawn it is marked on the card either by the player with a cross or a circle, or automatically when playing online. To win, a particular winning pattern is usually required; however, this can vary from game to game.
You win a round if you are the first to have a “Bingo”, meaning a complete winning pattern. After that, a new round starts with a new game card.
